With great joy that I share with you a series of stories published in Inside Edition , a CBS TV show.
These were the first animals of their species that received 3D printed prosthetics, and all of them were modeled in Blender!
- Gigi the Macaw Receives 3D-Printed Titanium Beak
- Injured Tortoise Gets A Hand-Painted 3D-Printed Shell
- Toucan Found Injured on Roadside Gets New 3D-Printed Beak
Gigi the macaw was the first bird to receive a titanium 3D printed prosthesis in the world. This story was showcased worldwide. In my fanpage I gathered screens captures from news broadcast in 26 languages.
Furthermore, a French news agency traveled to central-western Brazil to closely cover our work with an aracari (a type of toucan, in laymen's terms) and the result will be presented May 21st, in a special story on ARTE, a French-German channel. You can see the preview here.
As we can see, Blender is conquering its place in science and at the same time it is effectively saving lives.
A big hug to everyone!
This is so great! As an animal lover it's great to see them getting help like this, and as a Blender lover it's great to see it featured in something with such wide coverage! This is my favorite Blender story in a long time!
Yeah, what Kevin said. :)
